Austrian Chamber of Commerce plans International English School in Salzburg

The Austrian Chamber of Commerce and the regional educational board are planning to build an international school in Salzburg where students will be taught in English.

There are now concrete plans to open the school in 2016. "Salzburg will thus attract even more international qualified employees with children." says Manfred Pammer, Deputy Managing Director of the Chamber.

"The school will provide education in English for 10 to 19-year-olds. Qualified employees are more likely to work abroad when their children’s best possible education is ensured."

Up to this point, Salzburg has not been offering the opportunity of education in English from the age of 10 to 19. Herbert Gimpl, president of the regional educational board, says that the inhabitants of Salzburg will also benefit from an international school.

The Chamber of Commerce plans to take over the maintenance of the international school on the premises of the tourism school Salzburg-Klessheim. It has not been decided yet whether the school will be built on a different venue though.
